Season 6 lays groundwork for connections to “explode” in Seasons 7 and 8
FX has yet to renew AHS for Season 7 or Season 8, but Murphy already has big plans for them, in part to connect the entire series. The Hollywood Reporter asked Murphy how long he sees the show going, and when does he plan to have the seasons really start to come together.
Here’s Murphy’s answer: “You’ll see it this season, and then you’ll really see it after this season. We lay a lot of pipe, and you’ll see it explode in seasons seven and eight. They haven’t officially been picked up yet by John Landgraf — he and I always talk at the end of the year and decide how many we want to do. But John has always said, and I have always agreed, that this is a show that could be like ‘The Twilight Zone’ and run for multiple, multiple seasons and have its own inner mythology. So that’s how we’re approaching it. I’ll keep doing it for as long as we have the ideas and the momentum. I really love doing it.” He added he “absolutely” has a road map for where he wants the series to go. “And the seasons are connected, for sure.”
